One associates outstanding musicality and the highest degree of virtuosity with this classical guitarist from Berlin, who has already earned herself an international reputation with her expressive solo concerts. In addition to her refined playing culture, her elegant tone and highly nuanced performance, this winner of the German Music Council stipendium shows a remarkable sense of independence and extends the boundaries of classical guitar music with her in-depth knowledge of Mediterranean mentality, eastern European musical culture and Latin American joie de vivre. She reveals what she considers “music for life”, with a Brazilian choro and modinha, an Argentinean chacarera and a milonga. Nora Buschmann, sure-fingered in her expression, with outstanding sound, filled with elegance and fire, shows why she has won numerous international guitar competitions. And while the press describes this artist and her performances as “intelligent and sensitive” and “lively and spunky”, one must absolutely add attributes such as open-minded, grandiose and captivating.
